Miles Sorenson prides himself on his brutal honesty. Facts and logic are a hell of a lot easier to deal with than emotions. He’s got his career and a small, close-knit group of friends, and he doesn’t need nor want anything else. The total opposite of Quinn Barker, who doesn’t take life too seriously and thinks a good laugh can cure anything.
When Quinn takes Miles home, it’s supposed to be a one-time deal. Except they really click in the sack and end up spending the weekend together, enjoying each others’ bodies as much as their company…to Miles’ dismay. Matters get even more muddled when, months later, they run into each other at the popular West Hollywood bar, Wild Side, and pick up right where they left off.
On the surface, Quinn and Miles are like oil and water, but the draw between them is undeniable. As their lives further entwine, they realize there’s more to their connection than the way they singe the sheets together.
But demons from the past have a way of catching up, and no matter how strong the link is tying Miles and Quinn together, the pressure may be enough to make it snap.
Tied to You by Riley Hart is the second book in her Wild Side series and a spinoff her Crossroads Series. We first met Miles in Gone For You he was one of Oliver’s and Matt’s best friends. He was loyal but also came across as harsh. He tells it like it is and holds his cards close to his heart. Quinn was first introduced to us in Jumpstart he was Christian’s best friend. He’s the polar opposite of Miles. He likes to have fun and is constantly joking around.
At the beginning of the story Miles and Quinn run into each other at Wild Side. They both recognized each other from a weekend they spent together hooking up. Although Miles tells himself he’s not interested, he finds himself unable to resist Quinn. What begins as just a casual hookup quickly turns grows into more. Their connection is not only in the bedroom – it’s also emotional. They find that as different as they are their stories are similar. What ensues is an emotional story of one man letting down his guard and allowing love into his life and the other being there for him every step of the way.
-The characters. Both characters were well developed and showed character growth throughout the story (especially Miles).
-Narration. The story is told from dual POVs.
-Chemistry. Good lordy! Miles is a demanding top and Quinn loves to follow orders. This is the kinkiest story I’ve read by Hart.
-Pace. The pace is easy and quick. There are some flashbacks at the beginning – which I’m typically not a fan of- but I didn’t find them distracting in this case. Those flashbacks were pivotal to the story.
-Secondary cast. I’m a huge fan of series in which the books are standalones. It’s always fun to catch up with past characters and see how they’re doing. We were also introduced to Miles’ parents who were all kinds of amazing.
-The end. Miles at the end…. sigh…the way he took care of Quinn was so romantic!
Can this be read as a standalone? Yes, but the first books are great so don’t miss out! 🙂
Do I recommend this? Hells yeah! If you’re looking for an emotional, fun, sweet, sexy story with a little bit of kink be sure to read this book then! 4.5 Stars ♥
